The happiest place on earth…

It’s really funny that I have a BFF (well, two actually but that’s another story). So my BFF, sister of my heart, the other half of my brain, a friend since I was born, is Laura who lives in Los Angeles with her DH Jay, whom I have known and loved since I was 15.  Laura and Jay invited me to come down for the weekend and play at The Happiest Place on Earth for my birthday, what an awesome gift!  They are wonderful friends and I was delighted to have an excuse to visit. This is just a quickie post with some of the fun photos from our weekend together and marathon 16 1/2 hour day in Disneyland, enjoy!
